The birthday messages are sent in cooperation with the Finnish teleoperators.
Birthday text message from the Finland 100 secretary: Today Finland celebrates 100 years of independence – Happy Birthday everybody!
“Finland has received birthday messages and congratulations in many forms but we wanted to congratulate as many Finns and friends of Finland as possible in person,” says Pekka Timonen, General Secretary of the Centenary of Finland’s Independence, at the Prime Minister’s Office. “There’s nothing more Finnish than sending birthday greetings through a text message.”
